northeastern china, which is set to bring as well some problematic conditions into the next few days. i want to show you what it's been doing in china, first of all. this is coming out of china. we're looking at heavy snow and also some pretty strong winds. now, those winds are bringing temperatures down, also making for dangerous windchills, so it feels a lot colder than actually the figure on the thermometer because of the winds coming in. there is about 34 centimeters of snow accumulating in some areas, leading to road closures and suspension of buses. behind the strong winter storm is going to be high pressure. now, on one hand, that's good news because it means that the snow is going to be moving out and the skies will be clear. but it also allows for some very chilly air to hang around, and so things are not going to be getting much warmer. very, very chilly up here, but settling down. that is the forecast. as for japan, well, one storm moves out, and another one moves in. there is going to be some snow. it's not going to be quite like what we saw in northeastern china, and the upper e
